Spotlight Art – ‘A Blossom Festival in Paintings 2’ – by Howard Oakley (The Eclectic Light Company)

In the first of these two articles yesterday, I looked at a selection of paintings of tree blossom spanning much of the nineteenth century. This sequel takes the account on to just before the Second World War.

ringspringkahlers Laurits Andersen Ring (1854–1933), Spring. Ebba and Sigrid Kähler (1895), oil on canvas, 189.5 x 159 cm, Den Hirschsprungske Samling, Copenhagen, Denmark. Wikimedia Commons.

Laurits Andersen Ring’s finely detailed double portrait of Spring. Ebba and Sigrid Kähler from 1895 appears to show a mother and her daughter talking in their garden, but the two are in fact sisters. At the right is Sigrid, the year before her wedding, at the left is her sister Ebba, who was fifteen at the time. Ring uses a very light touch with the blossom and spring flowers to avoid them dominating the figures. This was exhibited at the Exposition Universelle of 1900 in Paris.

This year, you may have been reduced to viewing the cherry blossom in Japan and Washington DC online. In a bid to help us all get our springtime dose of tree blossom, today and tomorrow I’m showing a small selection of paintings of tree blossom.

Enjoy!

In the European tradition, the season of Spring has been depicted predominantly with flowers rather than the blossom of trees. This may reflect local conditions, and the fact that flowering trees are relatively difficult to paint in the studio. Once landscape painting started to become more popular, and more of it was performed in front of the motif, this changed.
